Estate Deal understands and appreciates your right to privacy. As such, Estate Deal’s policy will ensure that any personal information it receives from Real Estate Agents (The “Agent”) and estate owners (collectively, the “Owner”) remains confidential. This includes name, address, email address, gender, age, postal code, and telephone number. Once an Agent has won a bid and been selected by the Owner as the Agent of choice, the Owner will have access to the Agent’s name, phone number and email address.

- To send you any pertinent information regarding our service.
- To manage your account.
- To respond to your questions and concerns.
- For security reasons (e.g. prevention of prohibited activities).
- For statistical analysis.
- To help tailor your experience of the website
Note that personal data collected by Estate Deal may be used to generate group data shared with research sources and organizations. Any data used in this manner will be anonymous and will not contain personal information, thereby disallowing these sources from contacting you in any way.
